Since 2004, JSI has been supporting public health initiatives in Myanmar to improve access to and the quality of health care. JSI’s ongoing work supports the government’s commitment to achieving universal health coverage by 2030

This work includes:

Enhancing Frontline Health Worker Capacity
  • Data and health planning: JSI supported five township health assessments, generating data that was used to finalize and guide coordinated township health plans.
  • Improved technical skills: JSI facilitated training for 220 midwives in emergency obstetrics care and for 125 auxiliary midwives on basic support during pregnancy and delivery.
Strengthening Supply Chains
  • System building: JSI and UNFPA helped the MOHS improve availability and use of supply chain data to strengthen the management of 35 key reproductive and maternal health products through the implementation of the Reproductive Health Commodity Logistics System (RHC-LS) and supply chain quality improvement teams, which have demonstrated improvements in three key indicators: reporting rates have increased, stockout rates have declined, and facilities are stocked according to plan. This success spurred the government to nationally scale the system. As a key technical partner, JSI has supported the implementation of RHC-LS in 72 townships in 6 states and regions.
  • Commodity forecasting and procurement: The JSI-implemented USAID | DELIVER PROJECT supported Myanmar’s National Malaria Control Program by procuring and distributing malaria medicines, pharmaceutical supplies, and equipment, including more than 500,000 bed nets. JSI also supported the development of the National Health Supply Chain Strategy, and provides ongoing support to commodity forecasting and procurement.
Harnessing Information & Communication Technology Solutions

  • Mobile solutions for frontline health workers: Under the Myanmar RMNCH Quality of Care Project, JSI and Dimagi, Inc. are working, in partnership with UNICEF, to help the MOHS design and deploy CommCare, an open-source mobile application that improves the quality of care provided by midwives in rural communities by acting as a job aid and case management tool. JSI will help Myanmar’s MOHS expand this program to reach more than 10,000 midwives nationwide.
